Betting Odds – 2012 Light Fingers Stakes

February 16th, 2012

Betting markets have begun to fall into place for the 2012 Light Fingers Stakes at Warwick Farm racecourse Saturday February 18, 2012, with Streama currently favourite for the race.

Streama is paying odds of $3.40 to win the 2012 Light Fingers Stakes at Luxbet, after originally opening at odds of $3.60.

Trainer Guy Walter admits that the 2012 Light Fingers Stakes is not over Streama’s best distance.

“I think that’s probably fairly right but she’s shown before what an adaptable filly she is,” Walter said.

“She can sit up on the speed if it’s slowly run.

“She can sit off the speed and unleash a great sprint when they go fast. That’s a great attribute.”

Walter believes Streama deserves her spot as 2012 Light Fingers Stakes favourite.

“She’s working really well. Given all this weather, we’ve been very fortunate not only to get a couple of trials … but we’ve been able to get on the course proper a few times,” he said.

“We’ve been pretty lucky getting her ready so I think she’s going to be pretty right for this race.”

“They’ve all got to come back, including Streama.

“But she’s given us every indication she has and she’s relatively lightly raced.”

Streama won her most recent start last spring in the Group 1 Coolmore Flight Stakes by an incredible 6.5 lengths.

Karuta Queen is second favourite for the 2012 Light Fingers Stakes at Luxbet paying $3.70, while Hallowell Bell is third favourite at $9.50.
